Actually, it would be interesting to have a discussion about how one
would port OpenPBS or SGE to Scyld.
I think it should look like the SGI O2k version, with 1 mom on the

available, and report that as its # of cpus. When a job starts, it's
mom who picks which cpus it uses, perhaps using the Scyld resource
allocation layer. And then that information needs to get communicated
